The April 2011 Release (build 22.214.171.1244) is live: http://mfcmapi.codeplex.com.
I know I just released the March update a few days ago, but I just got permission from development to release this. I have thrown off the shackles of C++ and fully embraced the awesome power of the CLR. MFCMAPI.NET is a complete rewrite of MFCMAPI using the .Net framework.
The productivity gains were immediate. I was able to completely rewrite MFCMAPI, from scratch, in just 20 minutes. Since I had allotted a full hour for the conversion, I spent the extra time adding some new features, such as:
Even after implementing those amazing features, I still had a half hour left, so I decided to fix a few other outstanding issues for the Outlook and Exchange product teams. Look for announcements soon of the following hotfixes:
All in all, it was a super productive 45 minutes coding with .Net. I even had time for a nap! I look forward to doing it again.
Great, and about time. I was wondering when MFCMAPI was going to finally get magical cloud support.
This sounds like it'll fix all the outstanding calendar issues we're experiencing in one simple step! And the DTTIJDBE functionality will be a huge time-saver! Add in the fact that this all works without MAPI via the cloud should simplify deployment. (Plus I get to use a buzzword that appeals to our managers when doing my weekly reports.) Thanks for your 45 minutes of work to improve the lives of Exchange admins everywhere. Now I'll have plenty of time to go shopping for Angry Birds Pork Rinds at ThinkGeek!
Amazing, considering MS's "official" position has been that CDO will never be supported from .NET. Something about incompatible memory management models between .NET and some kinds of COM modules. Must be that fairy dust cloud. Or is it another kind of smoke cloud? ;);)
You might say that your Outlook is Cloud-y...
LOL - I'm a little late, but I did click the link before reading the rest (and checking the post date). Very funny. I'm sitting here with my laptop annoying the hell out of my wife with Rick Astley while she tries to watch Castle.
You're mean! Not as mean as the politician that announced he was going to quit, but mean anyway!
I think someone hijacked your link: "The April 2011 Release (build 126.96.36.1994) is live: http://mfcmapi.codeplex.com."
If you click on the link it goes to youtube instead of mfcmapi.codeplex.com.
Maybe this link is better? http://mfcmapi.codeplex.com
